Warning to Shareholders
We have been notified by some shareholders that they have recently received unsolicited calls in relation to their shares in Renold plc from anonymous or unknown third parties.
This has happened to many companies whose shareholders have received similar unsolicited phone calls or correspondence concerning investment matters and are typically from overseas based 'brokers' who target UK shareholders. Shareholders are advised to be very wary of any unsolicited advice, offers to buy shares at a discount or offers of free company reports.
If you receive unsolicited investment advice:
- Make sure you get the correct name of the person and organisation
- Check that they are properly authorised by the FSA before getting involved. You can check at www.fsa.gov.uk/register
- The FSA also maintains on its website a list of unauthorised firms who are targeting, or have targeted, UK investors and any approach from such organisations should be reported to the FSA so that this list can be kept up to date and any other appropriated action can be considered. If you deal with an unauthorised firm, you would not be eligible to receive payment under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. The FSA can be contacted by completing an online form at www.fsa.gov.uk/pages/doing/regulated/law/alerts/overseas.shtml
- Inform our Company Secretariat team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Details of any sharedealing facilities that the company endorses will be included in company mailings.
More detailed information on this or similar activity can be found on the FSA website www.fsa.gov.uk
